The Invisible Committee's The Coming Insurrection was once a phenomenon, celebrated in a few quarters and inveighed opposed to in others, publicized in media that ranged from campus bulletin forums to Fox information. Seven years later, The Invisible Committee follows up their premonitory manifesto with a brand new e-book, To Our Friends.

From The Invisible Committee:

In 2007 we released The Coming insurrection in France. It needs to be said variety of assertions through the Invisible Committee have considering been proven, beginning with the 1st and so much crucial: the sensational go back of the insurrectionary phenomenon. Who could have wager a kopeck, seven years in the past, at the overthrow of Ben Ali or Mubarak via road motion, at the rebellion of children in Quebec, at the political awakening of Brazil, at the fires set French-style within the English or Swedish banlieues , at the construction of an insurrectionary commune within the very middle of Istanbul, on a circulation of plaza occupations within the usa, or at the uprising that unfold all through Greece in December of 2008?

During the seven years that separate the arrival revolt from To Our neighbors , the brokers of the Invisible Committee have persisted to struggle, to prepare, to move themselves to the 4 corners of the realm, to anyplace the fires have been lit, and to discuss with comrades of each tendency and each kingdom. hence To Our associates is written on the experiential point, in reference to that basic circulation. Its phrases factor from the turmoil and are addressed to people who nonetheless think sufficiently in lifestyles to struggle as a consequence.

To Our associates is a file at the country of the area and of the circulation, an editorial that is primarily strategic and overtly partisan. Its political ambition is conceited: to supply a shared realizing of the epoch, even with the extraordinary confusion of the present.
